Malcolm Peters - TurndownThe crowds descended on Potato Trails on Friday evening for the 4th Night Harvest, one of the biggest dirt comps in SA. The boys at Potatoes have been working hard & have changed the line up a bit & made things much more interesting.

Potato Trails

Prepping the trails

With big names like Sam Reynolds, Kevin Kalkoff & Maxime Charveron we were in for a treat! As the sun dropped behind the mountains, the lights came on & the show began. A warm up jam session started things off. Once everyone was feeling comfortable Catfish introduced riders to the crowd & a little drizzle was keeping the jumps fresh, but gave the BMXers some grip issues with pedals, hands & tires, but that didn't stop the madness.

After the introductions it was hammer time & the big tricks started coming out. Reynolds was tricking everything & throwing some big flip no handers, while the French BMXers were just being French & way more stylish & going higher than anyone. Malcolm Peters was whipping & spinning all over the place & was good to see the trademark "Brendog Style" flow his way through the line.

The rain was on & off all evening but the crowds & riders were there for action & a little wetness wasn't going to stop this Harvest. Any tiny gap was made use of & trains of tricks were flying through.

The comp came to an end with a heavier downpour & prize giving commenced.

The rain gave us another gap just in time to make use of the huge trick jump.

David Rigby was into it quickly & stomped a massive front flip 1st try. Then it was Sam & Justin going mad. 3double whips, flip whips, super nothings & just general madness was on Reynold's trick list & Justin was making use of the good vibe to throw down & was trying 720's, 3 no handers & gave a flip no hander a go. Even though he was eating enough dirt to feed all the moles in SA for a few years it was so good to watch him push himself. Consistency was in Sam's favour & he walked away with the Best Trick Crown.

All in all despite the challenging weather The Night Harvest was a huge success & everyone had a good party & show.

Thanks to all the guys that made this jam possible, to all the diggers for the mint trails & the sponsors Monster Energy and Sony Mobile ZA in association with Dial'd Bikes,CFC Scaffolding and WG Dixon - Pty Ltd.
